This isn’t the end of the story for fans of the Halcyon!

The Galactic Starcruiser experience was a one-of-a-kind journey that immerses guests into the world of Star Wars like never before. From the moment you stepped aboard the Halcyon starcruiser, you were no longer just a guest – you were part of an epic narrative that unfolded around you. Interacting with characters like Chewbacca and other cast members added to the authenticity of the experience, making it truly memorable.

When this epic boutique hotel experience closed this fall, many fans were devastated to say goodbye to such a cutting-edge experience. While it was highly criticized for its price, fans who were able to experience the attraction raved about the immersive storytelling experience. While the physical attraction may be shuttered, fans are now living out the experience in a new and free way.

The Return of the Halcyon!

The attention to detail in every aspect of the Galactic Starcruiser enhanced the feeling of being in a real starship, from the design of the cabins to the activities available on board. As the Galactic Starcruiser made its final voyage before docking back at the terminal, guests were left with lasting memories of their immersive journey through the Star Wars universe.

Understandably, the closing was devastating for many fans. The Galactic Starcruiser Resort earned itself a theme park fandom of its own, with new conventions and fan pages popping up to honor and remember the fallen experience. While fans can still experience the world of Star Wars at Galaxys Edge, located in both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, many fans yearn for the one-of-a-kind experience that only the Halcyon starship could deliver.

  1. This is only footage of the video loops played on the ‘view ports’ in the hotel rooms. Sorry, but there’s nothing “immersive “ about that!
